Acupuncture & TCM 

Traditional acupuncture and nontraditional techniques, such as electroacupuncture and dry needling, often result in reported pain improvement. Multiple factors may contribute to variability in acupuncture's therapeutic effects, including needling technique, number of needles used, duration of needle retention, acupuncture point specificity, number of treatments, and numerous subjective (psychological) factors.

How does acupuncture affect the body?

Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.

Registered Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can help the body in many ways.  Massage can relax muscle tissue, which may lead to decreased nerve compression, increased joint space, and range of motion. This may lead to reduced pain and improved function.

Massage therapy may also improve circulation, which enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and helps remove waste products. These circulatory effects of massage may have value in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis or edema (an excessive accumulation of fluid in body tissues, which may be reduced using manual lymph drainage).

These effects suggest that massage may be helpful for a wide range of conditions. 

Some of these are listed below:

  • Injury

  • Imbalance

  • Tightness

  • Chronic muscle pain

  • Increase flexibility

  • Improve athletic performance

  • Relieve pain

  • Reduce anxiety

  • Release muscle tension

  • Relaxation

  • Reduced fatigue

  • Improved sleep
